ETSU's Department of Sustainability is responsible for many of the environmentally-consious efforts we see on campus. In addition to the department, various student groups such as the Student Environmental Health Association, the Agriculture Club, and the Cycling Club contribute to a greener, healthier, more sustainable campus culture.


EcoNuts are ETSU students employed by the Department of Sustainability who promote the goals of the department. They educate, support, and provide outreach to the ETSU community. Those interested in joining the EcoNuts should go to Jobx to see what positions are available.
